Cable TV reporting for the first time contributes to bottom line, Report cautions an expected flat 3rd Quarter for radio revenue

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Radio One, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROIAK and ROIA) today reported its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Net revenue was approximately $97.1 million, an increase of 29.3% from the same period in 2010. Station operating income (1) was approximately $34.8 million, an increase of 22.5% from the sa
me period in 2010. The Company reported operating income of approximately $15.8 million compared to operating income of approximately $13.8 million for the same period in 2010. The Company recorded a non-cash pre-tax gain of approximately $146.9 million resulting from its increased ownership and controlling interest in TV One which led to net income of approximately $98.6 million or $1.94 per share, compared to net income of approximately $2.0 million or $0.04 per share for the same period in 2010.


Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One's CEO and President stated, "The addition of Cable Television to our segment reporting for the first time in Q2 demonstrates the continued evolution of Radio One: core radio revenues for Q2 now represent approximately 62% of the Company's revenues. Our radio performance suffered from difficult competitive situations in Dallas and Houston, and sluggish economic recovery in our Mid-West markets. Our on-line and mobile product offerings continue to develop, and our losses at Interactive One narrowed considerably from the same period last year. I anticipate radio revenues in the third quarter to remain relatively flat, and we continue to focus on controlling the cost base, while developing other revenue streams."
